    Maximum text size for textFormat

    palodau
      Afternoon everyone,

      I am working on an application in which text is created dynamically. I seem to be experiencing a maximum size of 130 when using textFormat. I cannot seem to find any references to this limit. Is there a way to get around it?

      So far my only resolution is to create a smaller text field within a movieClip and then scale the movieClip. This moves the text of the pixel location that I need it however.

      Any help with this would be very much appreciated.
      Cheers,
      Michael

          you can making the text html and setting the text like this:

          <font size="X">text</font>

          Otherwise, if you can't set a font bigger tahn 130, you'll have to resize movieclips.
          You can create a custom class that embeds aTextField within a movieclip so that you get transparent coding, just replace TextField with CustomTextField.
